Places I remember: The Warehouse Cambridge
Fab, and all the other pimply hyperboles: War
Gear costume: Positive Vibration
Active compensatory factors: The uplifting start from Positive Vibration is what makes this album such a joy to return to from time to time.
Say you just can't live that negative way
If you know what I mean
Make way for the positive day'
Cause it's news (new day) news and days
New time (new time), and if it's a new feelin' (new feelin'), yeah
Said it's a new sign (new sign)
Oh, what a new dayI love that - it's what connects so many people to Bob Marley and his music - this message. He had some terrible things happen to him in his life and he saw a lot of bad things too. And still - oh what a new day!
That's pretty special. Jah love.
I've chosen War to highlight here as well because the positivity is maintained until the end of the album (War is track nine of ten). Rather than highlight war's brutality and degradation, Marley looks forward:
And we know we shall win
As we are confident
In the victory
Of good over evil -
Good over evil, yeah!
